One week after New Orleans hosted the first of two Tricentennial culinary exchanges, San Antonio returned the favor, welcoming chefs from Louisiana.
On Tuesday night, residents and visitors from two Tricentennial cities celebrated the first of two culinary exchange dinners at New Orleans’ SoBou Restaurant.
If you’ve never attended Cornyation, you’re missing out on one of San Antonio’s most unique and entertaining events of the year.

Earlier this month, I checked in with The Rivard Report before participating in the first annual NOLAbound project in New Orleans, LA. I joined 26 professionals from four business sectors – sustainable industries, biosciences, digital media, and arts-based businesses – for five days of behind-the-scenes access to the city’s civic, business, and community leaders. In return, my fellow participants and I were asked to help New Orleans brainstorm about what the city can do to create a more attractive environment for businesses and entrepreneurs. We were urged to share those perspectives with friends and colleagues through our social media and peer networks. I left San Antonio curious to discover what the new New Orleans had to offer, and excited to learn valuable lessons to apply in the Alamo City when I returned home.
